“We find it’s always better to fire people on a Friday.

October 28th, 2006 . by Darin

Studies have statistically shown that there’s less chance of an incident if you do it at the end of the week.

-Office Space

I’m afraid I had to let YoungRocco go. He was given more warnings then anyone else in the history of time, when he failed to yield to the warnings, I went out of my way to edit his comments removing the attitude and leaving the ‘substance’ rather then just deleting his comment or banning him like would have happened on any other site on the net.

But when confronted about his lies claiming that I had deleted ‘vital portions’ of his argument, he just disappeared, waiting for another post to be started so he could continue his hijacking then. Finally, he attempted to call me a liar, yet when confronted with the evidence against, he started pulling the ‘you hate Korea’ card.

And that’s when you know you’ve lost. If you can’t handle criticism without claiming that anyone who criticizes you ‘hates’ you, you’re saying that you think you are perfect and flawless. Sorry YoungRocco, but their is no perfect person/country/anything in this world. If you can’t handle seeing people criticize Korea, I encourage you to simply look the other way. Anyone who can participate in discussion, either in agreement or disagreement with any posters or commenters on this site is always welcome, anyone like yourself who does nothing more then hijack threads is never welcome.

I’m sure you’ll be back with a new account and a new name, but you will not start over from zero on warnings just by creating a new account. Any account discovered to be from you, will be removed without warning.

Lastly, for everyone, the atmosphere here at Occidentalism has been completely destroyed by YoungRocco and his childish attitude problems. He has corrupted many of the commenters here (and perhaps myself as well). Please, everyone, we all need to take a good look at ourselves and be sure we’re helping to solve that problem, not create it.

Sorry to have to be an ass like this, but I think it was the best course of action to be taken.

    Strangely, I’m sort of sorry he had to go because he was the most (excuse my choice of words) amusing in an irresponsible way to read the comments of, out of the people who posted here.
    Though, perhaps my own sensibilities have been corrupted by certain anonymous bulletin boards… so I guess I should just be glad that meaningful discussions can be carried out here again.
    I understand your decision to do what you did, and I hope things soon return to normalcy around here.

    On a side-note, isn’t equating YoungRocco to Yon-sama stretching it a bit? 🙂

    big deal. He says Good Day, I’ll teach you, etc at the end of his comments. Obsessive and compulsive, and intolerant YOU are.

    Darin, we did our best. He had something like 20+ requests and warnings over a couple of months from you and myself, and yet persisted. Truly, a lost cause.

    Not really a lost caust, Matt. When you stop and realize that YoungRocco is a typical Korean lunatic, stalking, jealous of Japan, obsessive nutcase, it is not surprising in the least.

    According to this weekend’s IHT, Friday is the WORST day to fire an employee.

    He was quite rude to me too. I think Chonko is on to something.

    Good news.
    I was just amazed at the patience and perseverence of those here
    who were trying so hard to converse with that guy when it was
    obvious that there were some screws missing from him.

    It’s anot always the case, but ignoring such trolls might be the best
    action since trolls are basically attention cravers.
    I guess his arguments were good (in the warped fashion) to be ignored?

    Anyway, being mostly a reader myself, I know everyone tried really hard
    before this action was taken.

    Cheers!

    I’m with shadkt on this one. As being also mostly a reader, I too was impressed with the extraordinary patience and tolerance most of the readers accorded him. In other boards he’d have been given the boot only after a few warnings. Reading his posts it was clearly evident he was a few fries short of a happy meal.

    Well, wouldn’t be surprised if he comes back under a new handle. These insecure, complex riddled types usually can’t handle criticism of any kind, especially if it concerns their great, almighty Korea. *yawn*

    Oh, yeah. Love the No Yon-Sama sign. “Kan Ryuu Kin Shi” lol

    The yon-sama sign is funny. I wish I could buy one to stick on the bottom of the toilet.
